[K12OSN] remote X problem. . .



Hello!

Last week, I was able to login to a remote server using:
ssh -X username server
and once logged in, I could run X applications and display them locally.
An example is the graphical system-config-network.

Today, when I do the same thing I get the following error:

_X11TransSocketINETConnect() can't get address for localhost:6010: Name or service not known
ERROR: Unable to initialize graphical environment. Most likely cause of failure is that the tool was not run using a graphical environment. Please either start your graphical user interface or set your DISPLAY variable.

What could cause this and how can I fix it?

This computer is Debian and the remote one is FC3(likely), but as I said this worked last week and I haven't change d anything that I know of.

Thanks in advance!
